FOI Disclosure Log and Other Information to be Published Routinely

FOI Disclosure Log

The Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires Freedom of Information (FOI) bodies such as the Health & Safety Authority to publish a disclosure log which contains details of the types of requests received under FOI and the decisions made by the body in response to those requests. To see the FOI Disclosure Log for 2018 please click here. Disclosures are listed in order of the date the request was received by the Authority. For privacy reasons, identifying information such as the name of the requester is not included in the disclosure log. Only requests related to non- personal information are published in the Disclosure Log. Consequently those listed below represent only a small proportion of the 158 requests received in 2018..
